Year 2017 has been the year for major phone releases throughout across the world, but it wouldn’t be any bad if one starts early to think about the flagships of next year, having said that next year is round the corners. Reportedly Samsung is beginning off much early than ever, with the company purportedly previewing S9+ and S9 at the CEES, in January, as per VentureBeat’s Evan Blass.
The S9+ and the S9 devices are said be more iterative updates on the already existing S8+ and the S8 than the thorough redesign Samsung had offered this year. As per Blass, the new devices will be seeing upgraded processors-likely the Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 845- for an extra boost in speed. However, the biggest shift that is believed to happen is moving the finger sensor of Samsung, just below the back camera, instead of the complicated position next to the lens, which Samsung placed it on its S8+ and S8 devices, and also Note 8. Both the phones will also be witnessing the integration of the AKG stereo speakers. And not to worry, as the headphone jack is apparently sticking by next year.
Over the smaller S9, the S9+ is also getting a few upgrades, as per Blass. The larger device is apparently getting a RAM of 6GB instead of a 4GB that’s seen on S9, and also a second rear camera just like the one seen on Note8.
And finally, Samsung also gets into rumour of releasing a new version of its DeX dock, which brings the phone flat by allowing it to be used as a touchpad or virtual keyboard. It’s further said that it also goes compatible with the older devices of Samsung.
Though, it’s not yet made sure as how much of it will be seen previewing at the CES versus the traditional event of March launch of the Samsung, that’s apparently taking place also. But since the annual Tech show emerging just within distance, surely it will be of no long wait.
